Notes

Stage is the second live album by British musician David Bowie, recorded on the Isolar II Tour, and released through RCA Records in 1978. Stage has been reissued numerous times, each with expanded track listings.

The recording was culled from concerts in Philadelphia, Providence, and Boston, US, 28–29 April and 5–6 May 1978. It primarily included material from Bowie's most recent studio albums to that date, Station To Station, Low, and "Heroes" (both 1977), but also contained five songs from The Rise And Fall Of Ziggy Stardust And The Spiders From Mars (1972).

      Got the German orange labels with only one small pressing ring around center hole.

        Incredibly dynamic pressing. Belew, the DAM trio, and everyone else in the band sounds great. I will say, I prefer listening to the Welcome To The Blackout live album when wanting to experience the Isolar II tour, but this is still fantastic.

          Side C is the real high of Stage in my opinion: the 4 "instrumentals" (with some vocal here & there...) played more clean and linear than the album version, I can imagine the attendance quite weirded out (is it a classical music concert???)... and then Breaking Glass burts out with its asymmetry and that gorgeous bass line.

          Ziggy era tracks are less interesting here (Side A)

          On Side B&D we have The Thin White Duke live at his best!

            Just like reecewg nails it in his/ her review, IT IS (sounding) so much better than the original one, even though even the old one -to me- has always been a great set, especially for the Heroes/ Low-tracks and the over-the-top Station To Station.

              This is a beautiful live album and nice US pressing. The sound is analog warm and natural.

                This is a very nice live album by David Bowie and sounds great. The whole thig has been well recorded and produced.

                    This came out when I was 17 and it's really the record that made me a Bowie fan. Got the 3 disc reissue the realized I needed the original. Beautiful Sterling pressing which I think needs just a little top end boost in the EQ to sound truly "live." An essential record in my collection.

                      Playing my copy today in Berlin on the RTR turntable and the flawless copy I have sounds stunning. I'd forgotten how good this is but I stopped returning to it after the 'correct running order' CD was released. Listening right now though it's hard to care as it's all so damn good.

                        Sounds amazing. I’ll probably be seeking the reissue because I found out it has extra songs (just like the other 70s compilation David Live). But this sounded great. I wasn’t expecting this since the reviews weren’t kind but forget them.

                        Also, sides 3 and 4 I think are supposed to be sides 1 and 2 (and viceversa) in the original concert. I’m not sure why the original release was sequenced like this. Either way sounds great.
